Trivia

In Russia, on 14th of September in 2008, in the city of Izhevsk, the militsia (police) confiscated an Olympic 6 modified to be fire live .22 caliber rounds (most likely using bullets from a TOZ-8 target rifle). This is unusual, as the Olympic 6 is considered very difficult to be rebuilt as an actual weapon.

Harrington & Richardson STR022

Harrington & Richardson STR022 - .22 Short blanks

The Harrington & Richardson STR022 is a starter pistol which can be differentiated from the later New England Firearms marketed pistols by its complete frame, as opposed to the NEF pistols which lack the front portion of the frame. The barrel of the pistol is actually a solid rod, where the rear of it is formed into a cone which is designed to deflect the sound and flash of the pistol out the sides of the frame, immediately ahead of the cylinder.
